Politicians from both sides of the aisle are fond of shouting, “no one is above the law.”
It goes without saying that equal justice is a concept that should be treasured by all
citizens in any nation but it is becoming increasingly apparent that equal justice for all, while a desirable ideal, is not a practiced reality. In fact, the ability to avoid the consequences of one’s iniquities is actually wide spread and seems to be directly proportional to the the individual’s wealth and/or circle of acquaintances.
It is somewhat ironic that an event which perfectly illustrates the disparity in the administration of justice would be provided by the drug addicted son of a former Vice President, now candidate for the nation’s highest office. The Hunter Biden laptop may well prove to be the catalyst for meaningful change in the justice system of this country.
Make no mistake, the unequal application of the law is not a partisan issue. The denizens of the swamp inhabit all spectrums of political thought. Their unifying characteristic is a lust for wealth and power and their modus operandi is, “whatever it takes.”
A laptop computer was turned over to a shop owner for repairs, ostensibly by Hunter Biden. A standard document was signed, a document that transferred ownership of the computer to the shop owner should it not be reclaimed in a timely manner. This document conveyed a right similar in nature to that of an auto mechanic who has the ability to file a mechanic’s lien on any repaired auto that is not claimed or if the bill is not paid.
The computer was not claimed and the shop owner set out to clear the hard drive and prepare the machine for resale when he discovered disturbing material. The nature of the material was such that he contacted the FBI and turned the laptop over to them. For his own protection he made copies of the hard drive. The shop owner fully expected there to be some public announcement, due to the nature of the material on the hard drive. When none was forthcoming he began to worry about his own safety and went public with the information.
It would appear at this juncture that the FBI, as they seem to have done with the vast trove of information collected in the Epstein raids, simply dropped the Hunter Biden hard drive into some Orwellian “memory hole.”
What makes this particularly egregious is that no one in government, particularly in the Justice Department, bothered to even make up an excuse and the Biden camp has not yet denied the veracity of the material on the hard drive beyond a rather tepid, “it’s all a smear campaign.”
As we have reached a time in the history of our nation when “important people” can break the law with impunity and have no fear of prosecution, where can we go from here? If the laws are not enforced against everyone, what right do we have to enforce them against anyone?
By what authority does the leadership in our Justice Department pick and choose who gets to flaunt the law and who gets hammered by it? This is not a rhetorical question, the answer is vital to our way of life in a civil society. Without a uniform enforcement of law we open the door to tyranny and anarchy.
We should be very, very afraid. Enough so that we stand up and collectively demand that those we have empowered to enforce our laws do so equally and impartially, then let the chips fall where they may.
